Yuma, Arizona.– Camp Inferno, which provides female teens a hands-on experience into the duties of a firefighter, is open for enrollment.
The goal of Camp Inferno is to offer a real-world experience where young ladies are encouraged to challenge themselves on numerous physical and mental firefighter tasks in a controlled setting. Participants will develop fellowship, respect for others, self-assurance, and leadership skills over the course of one full day and two evenings.
Live firefighting, repelling and ladder climbing are just a few of the fun activities planned in a tightly controlled setting to ensure safety.
Camp Inferno will provide T-shirts and gift bags for campers and will issue turnout gear for their use. Snacks will be provided. On Friday participants will enjoy a pizza dinner with a campfire and s’mores, and hamburgers for lunch on Saturday.
